Every autumn the Agisters organise a series of drifts when all the commonerís ponies are rounded up. The round-up is done on horseback at high speed. They are moved off the forest to a pound. They are checked over, wormed, the colts in particular and any old or sick ponies are removed from the forest and the dues for grazing on the forest are paid. Their tails are trimmed to signify that this has been paid.

A few shots from the Mill Lawn Drift last week end. I ran these through Lightroom and played about with the Phaded photo preset

A very good set of photos. This is still something I've yet to see. It must be an exciting event to witness.

The round up itself happens very quickly, in fact at breakneck speed! The rest of the day is more leisurely by comparison and has a social element to it for the commoners.

.....it is not widely advertised as too many spectators can cause problems and impede the drift itself.

Thanks for your comments folks!

I used to live and work in the New Forest, Ben, and remember these scenes very well. I particularly like the wide view and all the action in V1.
